    It's amazing what you find when you look close enough...

    One of the upstairs return ducts in my house uses a wall cavity to reach the basement. Problem is that the wall cavity runs down the wall between the house and the attached garage, and this cavity was subsequently stuffed with insulation. Basically, this return is useless.

    Is it better to try to remove this insulation, or to cut a retrn-sized hole through the door to the bedroom and trim it with return vents to allow the air to return via the main part of the house?

    seal the existing hole! for fire protection, you need a wall with few holes next to a garage!

    put a return above the doorway -- why screw up a door? besides, you may not want to hear me snoring when I visit.
